'Sedition' suits against sanctuary schools good step

- The Washington Times

The David Horowitz Freedom Center in Los Angeles is kicking into high gear a campaign against 11 schools in California known as safe havens for illegals, telling them, in no uncertain terms: Stop the sanctuary madness. Or else we'll prosecute you "for sedition," group founder Horowitz wrote, in an online post.

California Dem brings on the crazy -- 'shutdown' Trump!

- The Washington Times

A Democrat in California -- a say-no-more type of phrase, if ever there was one -- has issued a fiery statement against President Donald Trump, calling on fellow crazed Democrats -- a redundant type of phrase, if ever there was one -- to subvert any and all White House policies, packages, proposals and programs.

Trump sends ultimatum: Pass Obamacare or ...

- The Washington Times

Oh my, Republicans are in a spot. On Obamacare, it seems, President Donald Trump ain't playing, and late Thursday evening, he sent that message House Republicans' way, telling them to pass the reform plan -- or face the wrath of voters because he's moving on to other legislative matters.

Giving Shakespeare novel treatment

Jeanette Winterson's scintillating, clever "The Gap of Time" ($15, 273 pages) is the first of the novels commissioned by the Hogarth Press in honor of the 400th anniversary of Shakespeare's death, each of which takes one of the Bard's plays and rewrites it as a novel.

It's always Trump's fault

The mainstream media pile-on of the Department of Homeland Security for its directive banning laptops, tablets and other electronic devices on direct flights from cities in eight predominately Muslim countries to the United States follows a familiar pattern.

Reading, writing, and raping

Rape was once a capital crime almost everywhere. But the politically correct culture, with its gift for dumbing down everything, regards rape now not as a felony, but a misdemeanor, something like shoplifting.

School choice will unlock potential

Just as it would be impossible to sell a cake containing all the wrong ingredients, it's not possible to sell a school-choice scheme that is as far removed from school choice as East is from West. Not only does school choice not have to cost one dime, but it will save countless billions for hardworking taxpayers and provide every child the opportunity for a quality education that meets their needs, talents and faith. This will result in fewer dropouts, less crime, fewer gangs and less need for welfare, government health-care, abortions and prisons. It will surely usher in a new era of liberty, justice, prosperity and domestic tranquility.

Turkey must leave Cyprus

Like an overbearing parent, Turkish Foreign Minister Mevlut Cavusoglu prescribes how Cypriots must obey Turkey in order to have a future ("Turkey's vision for Cyprus," Web, March 19).
